Dover and Pacifica Quartets (part of the Chamber Music Kelowna 2017/2018 Concert Season)
The Dover Quartet catapulted to international stardom following a sweep of the Grand Prize and all three Special Prizes at the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition. The quartet won the grand prize at the Fischoff Competition, and special prizes at the Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition.
Recognized for its virtuosity, exuberant performance style, and daring repertory choices, the Pacifica Quartet is one of the finest chamber ensembles performing today. Named the quartet-in-residence at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music in March 2012, the Pacifica was also the quartet-in-residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (2009-2012). Pacifica Quartet received the 2009 Grammy for Best Chamber Music Performance.
